CONFIRMED: Argentina and Brazil line-ups - Chelsea and United stars feature

Here is how Argentina and Brazil will line up in China this afternoon with players from Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United included.

Argentina starting XI: Romero, Zabaleta, Fernandez, Demichelis, Rojo, Pereyra, Mascherano, Pastore, Di Maria, Aguero, Messi

Brazil starting XI: Jefferson, Danilo, Miranda, David Luiz, Luis Filipe, Luiz Gustavo, Elias, Willian, Oscar, Neymar, Diego Tardelli

Argentina and Brazil face off in Beijing on Saturday afternoon with a whole host of Premier League players on show.

The match was in severe doubt following the smog that engulfed the city last week, forcing the players to remain in their hotels aside from just two hours training a day.

However, the game has been given the okay and that will enable fans to see two of the most exciting national teams in the world go head-to-head in a match that is never just a friendly.

Among the players taking part are Manchester United’s Angel Di Maria, Chelsea stars Oscar, Willian and Filipe Luis and Manchester City's Pablo Zabaleta.

United’s club-record signing Di Maria has been particularly impressive in recent times, and also put in a master-class for his country in a friendly against Germany last month.
